This is the 12th and last of the books in the Darren Shan Series of Cirque Du Freak. The author is the main character and this is his story...Vampires vs. Vampaneze. The Vampire Prince, Darren Shan must face his archenemy, Steve Leopard. Along with this fight there is a problem. If he wins, he will be damned and if he loses well... he's dead. No matter what, one of them will have to die and the one will rule. The winner will be the Lord of the Shadows, a ruler that will destroy the world. Darren has one chance to make this all right, but that involves cheating destiny.Mr. Shan has written a tale for all ages. Like all the other stories, Sons of Destiny is fast paced and spine chilling to the end, but also with the important aspects of friendship and moral standards to uphold. You can read this story alone, but I would recommend reading this series from the start to appreciate the full ongoing story of Darren Shan.This is rated young adult. My kids and I read this series when it first came out. We were so hooked that we ordered the remaining four books of the series from the UK because we couldn't wait for them to be released here in the US.Heads up: The first book is going to be a movie soon! We're seeing a sneak peek this weekend. Stars: Ken Watanabe (Batman Begins), John C. Reilly (Step Brothers), Salma Hayek (Spy Kids 3), Josh Hutcherson (Journey to the Center of the Earth, Bridge to Terabithia)
